MARY + RAY | HOOVER DAM ENGAGEMENT SESSION, COLUMBUS OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
We had met only Mary at this past Columbus Wedding Show but hadn't yet met Ray. Needless to say it's always an exciting time to be able to hang out with your couples. It's that time you get to learn all about them and ask a million questions, in between shots that is! When we found our couple we could definitely tell who they were. They were the best dressed on the dam and rocking their VANS. We loved them already.
WHEN YOUR COUPLE CAN READ YOUR MIND!
Once we got started Mary traded in her purple VANS for sparkly heels while Ray decided to continue to rock his maroon VANS. We were all for it and inspired to capture their love. IT WAS SO EASY!! I'm not even kidding I think they could read our minds! I don't know how many times we all would be about to tell them what to do only to say never mind and keep shooting. IT WAS MAGIC!
After a little bit, Mary & Ray's little munchkins showed up. They were the CUTEST!!! Rocking their little outfits and completely unaware of what they had just gotten themselves into. It started out great until they realized we were surrounded by water. That's when we got the ohhhh's and awe's. But once we let them roam a little we were capturing some awesome candids. It's impossible not to have fun with two little munchkins running around super excited about everything they were seeing!
Mary and Ray began discussing the possibility of marriage (aka Mary bugging Ray for a ring for carrying TWO babies for 37.8 weeks) and Ray did not let Mary down! A year later, when all Mary's family was in town for the Thanksgiving Turkey Troy in Powell, Ray anxiously await Mary and the twins at the finish line. As she crossed the line, Ray was on one knee with the most beautiful ring in his hand and asked her to spend the rest of their lives together. Of course, she said YES!!
MEET ADDISON & GRAYSON
These little balls of energy kept us on our toes...literally, we were running round trying to capture them just being them! It was easy to catch them being adorable. Once they realized we were cool. And if there is one thing I can definitely agree with is that Addi is Mary's Mini and Gray is Ray's Mini! I LOVE THAT!
First time shooting an engagement/family session and you know what? I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
Ray and Mary first locked eyes at a Zedd concert in 2013. They were on an off until March of 2014, when they began spending every day together, holiday's with family, and weekend trips to Chicago to visit Mary's older brother and now SIL. In February they received the greatest surprise of all, a positive pregnancy test! In March, one year after they began dating, the doctor confirmed it was TWINS!!! Babies meant a house, which they bought/rehabbed/and moved in July 4th. The twins Addison and Grayson, were born October 12th, 2015.
